The editor can not undertake to return 

Then and Now. 

That title of uncertain significance and opprobrious inference, "an- 
gel," which was so commonly in use among amusement people only a 
few years ago, has just about dropped from the nomenclature of the 
profession of entertainment. The reason for this lies in the fact that 
the amusement business has been placed upon a commercial basis. Busi- 
ness men are not enchanted by the prospect of a glamorous career as 

proprietor of a circus or theatrical enterprise. They are not drawn into 

the field by the mere scent of sawdust or the dream of being worshipped 
(albeit without true reverence) by be-painted and be-wigged chorus 
girls. They are not influenced by sentiment or impelled by vanity ; their 
egotism does not induce them to enter the field for the gratification of 
their personal vanity and sentimentalism. The prospect of standing ai 
the entrance of a big top in silk hat and Prince Albert coat, flipping their 
package of "comps," is not the incentive that it was for their prede- 

The business has changed. With all honor and all credit to its 

Eioneers, we may sav has changed for the better. The amusement 
usiness is to-day owe of the recognized fields of commercial enterprise 
and endeavor. It is looked upon with respect by our greatest and most 
able financiers, a number of whom engage in it as they engage in other 
business — for the profit and the power it affords. 

Looking back over the past decade, we can observe that the men who 
have risen to the front rank in professional amusement were really cap- 
tains of industry. In the circus field, James A. Bailey was an exemplar, 
but his death did not leave the business without men of brains and ability 
at its head. There are nany able showmen in America to-day. Some 
of them own and operate shows of their own, while others are content to 
work for the princely salaries and the independence that such positions 
afford. The big tent-shows are framed up on business principles, and in 
the dealings of circus men with those engaged in the railroad business, 
and other forms of transportation, as well as the producers and jobbers 
of all the paraphernalia, stock and provender necessary for the equip- 
ment of a show, demand and 
to the dignity of their pursuit. 

The theatrical business, in the meantime, has been organized along 
equally unassailable commercial lines. Theatres have been formed into 
circuits, plays are being produced by corporations and syndicates and 
companies of men trained and experienced in that business. Where only 
a few years ago independent attractions booked "wildcat" dates, paid 
exorbitant railroad rates and fared as best they could in the face of 
prejudice, growing out of their want of combination of mutual sympathy, 
the manager of the attraction now leaves the city of his first date with 
his route card printed, and all preliminary arrangements made. 

System, uniformity of method, and adherence to strict business prin- 
ciples have brought about the metamorphosis. 

Pessimism has no place in the showman's system of logic. 

Just at this time the discussion of cleanliness and salacity in theatrical 
attractions is agitating the amusement purveyors, not only in New York, 
but throughout the balance of the country. Broadway managers com- 
plain that some of the attractions offered in Gotham are of a nature 
calculated to prejudice the public and legal authorities against amuse- 
ments generally, and for this reason they have taken it upon themselves 
to adjust the situation without the muck-rake methods that would be 
used if the cleaning up was left to other influences. Of course, public 
sympathy and public judgment are with the Broadway managers, but 
their position is more delicate than appears on the surface; for they are 
laying themselves open to unwarranted though acrimonious opposition. 
The managers of the high-class attractions and of the theatres playing 
high-class attractions in New York are not more of a power in their 
districts than the manager playing other classes of attractions in parts 
of the city where the first-class show is unknown and not wanted. This 
is the reason that those managers who have allied themselves against 
what is termed the indecent show are accused of making a sentimental 
and illogical plea to public sentiment. Like all other cases of a similar 
nature, the results will be threshed out through the public press, the daily 

newspapers, of course, taking their stand with the managers who have 

proclaimed their object as the uplifting of the drama. 

It is only the short-sighted theatrical purveyor who can not see that 
pandering to the lower instincts of society's undercrust is hurtful to 
amusements as an institution. Therefore, the managers who are op- 
posing unclean shows are the far-seeing ones. Though their object may 
not be merely altruistic, the results will be the same, and both the public 
and the amusement profession in general will profit. 

It is fitting that in an issue devoted to open-air amusements, and in 
which there appear articles and treatises contributed by the best-known 
authorities and most facile writers on the subject of outdoor amuse- 
ments, we should say something editorially regarding this great field of 

Outdoor amusements, as we know them, are indigenous to the United 
States. Fairs they have in England and France and in Germany, but 
their fairs are practically devoid of show features, being devoted almost 
exclusively to agricultural interests. 

The English amusement park, and the amusement parks of France 
and Germany are rather tame affairs compared to our Luna Parks, 
Dreamlands and White Cities. America is a country of open places, and 
we are essentially a people who love our amusements in the open air. 
Our rich are not sportsmen as they are in Europe, for the rich man of 
America is not the man of leisure. He is usually tbe individual who has 
devoted his life to building up the business upon which his fortune is 
based. If he inherited his wealth, it came from an ancestor who was 
busy, and he handed down the spirit of industry to his heirs. The Amer- 
ican man of wealth mingles with the small shopkeeper and respectable 
middle classes at the summer amusement resort, whether it be park, 
exposition or circus. This universal patronage is the basis upon which 
the tremendous plan of American outdoor amusements has been founded. 

We have hundreds of amusement parks in the United States, costing 
each not less than from $1,000 to $500,000. There are, furthermore, a 
number of parks, costing more than $1,000,000. Every attraction at one 
of these parks is made as elaborate as money and ingenuity are capable 
of compassing. To the European visitor making his first excursion to 
Coney Island, N. Y., the magnificent array of costly amusement devices 
is a marvelously strange and unwonted sight He may be familiar with 
all the best there is in the way of amusements in his native land, but he 
has never seen that which will even approach the magnificent devices and 
amusements at this nucleus of all American amusement resorts. 

He may next visit one of our big circuses which he has possibly not 
had any chance of seeing upon its visit to his country. If so, it is just 
a:- wonderful, compared to the tent show exhibitions of his own land, as 
was Coney Island in contrast tb its parks. The explanation for this 
superiority of ours in the way of amusement organizations may be found 
in the fact that Americans are constitutionally an amusement-loving and 
amusement-patronizing nation. Our adopted citizens contract the same 
spirit. We remember, not long ago, having seen a company of Bohemian 
peasants in a railroad station. There were a number of children among 
them who were dropping penny after penny in the gum slot machines. 
In their native Bohemia there would have been no inclination to do this. 
e\en if the slot machines were there as an inducement. It seems to be 
in the atmosphere, in the associations, or whatever you will. At any 
rate, it is a spirit that doesn't prevail on the other side of either ocean. 
For instance, there is in England no annual event of such importance . 
and so universally attended as the Canadian National Exposition ; while I 
in the United States, our annual state fairs at Springfield. Illinois, and 1 
Dallas, Texas, are unequaled in extent and attendance anywhere, except 
at the Toronto Exposition, mentioned above. 

Half a dozen years ago, the carnival business, an exotic from France, 
was among the most important of our open-air amusements. But the 
carnival business waned, probably through abuses by unscrupulous pro- 
moters engaged in the enterprise. There are a few carnival companies 
still in America, operated on extensive plans and paying tremendous 
yearly profits. The offenders of public taste and professional propriety 
have been exterminated, and the carnival business to-day is an important, 
honorable and respected factor of our summer amusements.

Review of Motion Pictures. 

The review of new films, which we announced to begin with 
this issue, has been postponed till the issue of Jan. 14, on account of 
the change of personnel in our New York office. These reviews 
will positively be instituted with the issue of Jan. 14, and they 
will be more reliable, more comprehensive and complete than any 
that have appeared in other papers. They will be honest reviews, 
arranged solely for the information and guidance of the exhibitor 
and exchange operator. 


Popularity Voting Contest. 

In starting a voting contest for the most popular films, The 
Billboard will probably be charged with employing the plan some- 
what earlier instituted by another amusement paper, which devotes 
some space to the business and profession of motion pictures. So 
be it, then, but voting contests of all kinds have been used by news- 
papers, magazines and journals from time immemorial, and in its 
never-failing zeal to conserve the interests of motion pictures. 
The Billboard would have taken the popularity voting contest in 
its turn anyhow. The rules and methods of this contest are an- 
nounced on another page of this issue. : • ■• 

Most Popular Motion Picture Actress. 

Going a step further in . its popularity contest, The Billboard 
is at the same time arranging for a contest by which the identity 
of the most popular motion picture actress will be established. 
Photographs of the individuals who shall be foremost in this race 

will be published with each report.

The Motion Picture Special. 

A special Motion Picture Number of The Billboard, devoted 
to all phases of the motion picture art and industry and its allied 
branches, will . bear date of Jan. 28, 191 X. The number will have 
a beautiful and appropriate cover, in The Billboard's colors, black 
and. gold, and its contents will be especially selected and arranged 
for the interest, information and benefit of those engaged in the 
production, propagation and exhibition of motion pictures. 

"I bare beard that there have been 
ent rumors thst tbe Psrk wss to be

the statement Is not true. J oat because X

to Imagine that the Park will be made s bur-

(EDITOR'S NOTE.— Tbla U <t» second tiutillmeiit o( tbc hlitorj of the Htm of famous 
showmen. Last week were published revlewi of the careen of P. T. Barnum, James A. Bailer. 
Adam Forepancb, I. A. Van Amburcb, Jobs Boblnsoa, and Jsmes L. Hutcblnaon.) 

Admittedly one of the greate t clowns that ever pranced on the hippo- 
drome track was Dan Rice. "Col. Dan," as he was affectionately known, 
was born in New York City, at the corner of Mulberry and Chatham 
streets, Jan. 25, 1823. At an early age, Dan was employed as a milk 
peddler, delivering milk to the customers of his employer. Wearying of 
that business, Dan drifted to Pitts- 
burg, and became a stable boy, race 
rider and hack driver. He began 
his life as a showman by exhibiting 
an educated pig. Upon the death 
of the learned porker, Rice returned 
to. the turf. In 1839, he joined Old 
John Robinson's Circus, and won a 
dancing contest for a prize of $50 
against Ed. Davis. His dramatic 
debut was made in December, 1839, 
in a spectacle at the Museum, St. 
Louis. In 1841 he organized a min- 
strel troupe in Pittsburg. In Octo- 
ber of the same year he appeared 
at the Masonic Hall, under the man- 
agement of H. A. Paylor, uncle of 
P. T. Barnum. Soon after he was 
engaged by Dr. Spaulding, of cir- 
cus fame, to do a clown act, sing 
comic songs, appear in feats of 
strength, perform a negro part, and 
undertake to whip any three men 
who offered to meet him after the 
tent was down; he also drove a 
four-horse team, all for $1 5 a month 
"and keep." In 1847-48, Dr. Spauld- 
ing paid him $1,000 a week. In 
1844 he was at the Bowery Amphi- 
theatre, New York, under the man- 
agement of John Tryon. During 
the season of 1845 h * toured with 
Seth B. Howe's show. In i860 he 
went South with a steamboat show, 
getting out of Dixie "by the skin of 
his teeth," at the breaking out of 
the Civil War. He appeared at the 
Walnut Street Theatre, Philadel- 
phia, in March, 1862, in the face of 
an angry mob who doubted his loy- 
alty. Dan Rice received his title of 
"Colonel" at the hands of President 
Taylor, and was a member of his 
personal staff. At the breaking out 
of the rebellion, Col. Rice was ac- 
tive . in raising the Eighty-third 
Pennsylvania Volunteers from Erie County. After the war, he erected 
a handsome monument to the memory of the patriotic dead, at Erie, Pa. 
He developed the best trained horse the world probably ever knew, the 
stone-blind, milk-white stallion, Excelsior. He purchased the Paris Pavil- 
ion after it returned to America, and sent it en tour, introducing a novelty 
in management by having as an attache a press agent with the show in 
the person of the late David S. Thomas. In 1882 he visited California 
with John Robinson. For several seasons, at the outset of Adam Fore- 
paugh's career, he commanded the salary of $1,000 per week. He died 
in Long Branch, N. J., February 22, 1900. 

To have spent over fifty years under the white tops, was the record of 
Louis B. Lent. His first engagement in the circus field was in 1834. 
when he became agent with June, Titus and Angevine's Menagerie. 
In. August of the same year he purchased an interest in I. R. and W. 
Howe's Menagerie, which was considered one of the best in the country. 
From 1835 to 1838, inclusive, he was co-partner in Brown and Lent's 
Circus, traveling by steamboat on the Mississippi and Ohio rivers, and 
exhibiting in New Orleans, Natchez, St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati 
and Pittsburg. From 1839 to 1842, inclusive, he became again associated 
with June, Titus and Angevine's Menagerie and Circus. In 1843 he be- 

ame a partner in and manager of Rufus Welch's National Circus, and the 
following year was co-partner in Sands and Lent's American Circus, 
which exhibited in England. He returned to America in 1845, and be- 
came again a partner in and manager 1 f Rufus Welch's National Circus. 
During the next three years, he was co-partner and manager in three dis- 
tinct shows, all newly fitted out — Van Amburgh's Menagerie, Sands, Lent 
and Company American Circus, and June, Titus and Angevine's Menag- 
erie and circus. The season of 1849 
he passed in California. The fol- 
lowing two years he was again a 
partner in and manager of Rufus 
Welch's National Circus. In 1852- 
53 he was partner with Seth B. 
Howes and P. T. Barnum, and 
manager of Barnum's American 
Museum and Menagerie, exhibiting 
among other curiosities, General 
Tom Thumb, and ten elephants. 
During the next three years, he was 
a partner with Rufus Welch, in the 
National Theatre and Circus in 
Philadelphia, Pa. The show was 
announced as Welch's National Cir- 
cus and L. B. Lent's New York 
Circus Combined. Welch's wagons 
were painted with vermillton, and 
Lent's ultramarine blue. From 
1857 to 1863, inclusive, he managed 
L. B. Lent's National Circus. The 
next three years he was proprietor 
and manager of the Equescurric- 
ulum, National Circus, Adams* 
Grizzly Bears, Hurdle Buffalo, 
troupe of trained dogs, ponies 1 _ 
monkeys. From 1865 to 1872, in- 
clusive, in the fall and winter, he 
managed the New York Circus and 
the Hippotheatorium, New York 
City. In 1873-74, he managed the 
New York Circus, Museum and 
Menagerie. During 1875, he was 
railroad agent of Howes and Cush- 
ing's Circus and Menagerie, and 
the succeeding year he held a like 
position with J. M. French's Circus 
and Menagerie. In 1878, he was 
manager and railroad agent of the 
Van Amburgh and Company's Men- 
agerie, and the following year he 
was director for Adam Forepaugh, 
and at the end of the season revived 
the New York Circus at the Globe 
Theatre, New York. He died in 
New York, November 29, 1887. 

Dr. Gilbert R. Spaulding's first venture in the circus business was 
through the nedium of a loan of a sum of money to Sam Nichols, a 
circus manager. Previous to his first circus enterprise, Spaulding was 
a druggist in Albany, New York. Associated with him in his first circus 
venture was Charles J. Rogers, a prominent showman. In 1848, the 
firm of Spaulding and Rogers introduced as a parade feature a forty 
horse team, driven abreast by one man. It was Dr. Spaulding who in- 
vented and used quarter poles, eleven tier seats and extra front seats. 
He introduced these improvements over the old facilities in 1850, during 
the first tour through New England of the Spaulding and Rogers Circus. 
The firm then built a floating palace, upon which entertainments were 
given on the western rivers. In 1851, David Bedwell was admitted to 
the partnership, and for several years the trio controlled a number of 
ventures of magnitude in the theatre and tented field. In the spring of 
1S62, the firm put up a portable amphitheatre, touring for three years in 
Brazil, Uruguay, Buenos Aires and the West Indies. In 1867, Avery 
Smith, Gerard C. Quick, John J. Nathans, G. R. Spaulding and David 
Bedwell combined in sending to Paris a grand all-star company, to ex- 
hibit in a unique canvas top, portable wooden structure, built in Albany.

New York, Dec 31 (Special to The BU1- 
■ board).— The latest operetta. The Spring Maid, 
has been unreservedly pronounced charming, due 
mainly to the work of Christie Macdonald, who 

' pution ssLr^^j^HX^ 

plot of the opera concerns the self- 
esteem rn which the Prince Aladar holds him- 
self. He finds noble women cold and believes 
In looking for lore affairs among whst he char- 
acterizes as "the lower classes." He hears 
about the charm of Annamlrl. one of the girls 
who dispenses water to the tourists who have 
come to take the core at the Carlsbad Spring. 
He wagers that he can win her In a day. The 
Princess Bozena overbears Aladar make this 
wager, and thereupon promptly steps into the 
-shoes and, of course, the dress of the Spring 
Maid. This Is only to teach the Prince a les- 
son, but It ends quite as the Prince might hare 

This is the first production of Messrs. Louis 
P. Werbs and Mark A. Lenschor, the latter, 
well known as general press representative of 
the Orpheum Circuit- They deserve great cred- 
it for bringing Macdonald Into prominence as a 

Toe Tribune finds this one objection to the 
operetta — that its beauty is somewhat marred 
by the addition of what has too often hereto- 
before been considered essential elements of a 
Broadway musical play, namely a tone of vul- 
garity which is not entirely compatible with the 
dean, fairylike atmosphere of the opera found- 
ed on Grimm's fairy tale. 

The Herald contributes the following In be- 
half of this play: "It all made a 1 

nation, for music, fun and sentiment were ef- 
fectively blended. The audience was not the 
lesst backward In telling everybody on the 
stage that they liked It- And with good reason. 
It Is ss pretty music ss has been wafted from 
abroad for many a blue moon. Th?re are 
waltzes that refuse to let one's feet behave,' 


Haensel and Cretel 
At Metropolitan 

New ' York. Dec. 31 (Special to The BUI- 
. — The spectacle of two distinguished corn- 
la one day on the stage of the Metro- 
Opera House can be deemed worthy of 
L However, en Christmas Monday, both 
_ and Gretel and Toe Girl of the Golden 
' West were rendered, the former being given as 
a matinee for the little ones, snd a- real treat 
they had. The Sun mskes the following remark 
concerning the former production: 

"Of course any one could see that Bella Al- 
len really believed that she was Gretel, and 
Marie Mattfcld thought she was Haensel. And 
as for Albert Relss, he wss the meanest snd 
wickedest snd ugliest old witch that any one 
ever asw riding through the sir on a monoplane 
made out of a brook. Then there was Otto 
• Goritz. Well, there! Any little boy or girl 
that wouldn't hare him for a papa wouldn't 
eat gingerbread anyhow. Leonora Sparkes 
wanted to be the Dewman. but she bad one of 
those nasty colds, snd so they let Anns Csse 
be It as well as she could. And there was Al- 
- bed Hertz trying to boss the wbole thing with 
■ big stick, and be had & whole army of fid- 
dlers snd things that they played to make the 
children happy. And after the opera Mme. 
Pavlowa and Mr. Mordkln danced, and then ev- 
ery one went home." 

In the evening the grown-nps convened at the 
opera house to hear Puccini's Girl of the Gold- 
en West- This opera was indeed meritoriously 
produced, aa the following critic records: 

"The people Inside the house appeared to en- 
joy the performance greatly. There was plenty 
of real applause, and when Mr. Caruso towed 
Mr. Puccini Into sight after the first act. the 
theatre rang with cheers snd brsvos. There 
was no question about the public approval of 
the composer. He wss called out several times, 
and was again summoned to the front after the 
second act. 

"The performance had the same characterls- 
ties ss Its predecessors. It went with spirit, 
color and dramatic force. Miss Destinn's im- 
personation of Minnie confirmed the Impression 
already made by It. This Is certslnly her best 
part, and she sane and acted excellently. Mr. 
Caruso repeated his good performance of John-

Suzanne is a Vehicle of Gossamer Threads; But the Dainty 
Little Star Handles Her Conspicuous Part So Cleverly 
that the Critics Unite in Praise 

New York, Dec » (Special to The Billboard.) 
—The critics of the metropolis have given their 
verdict on the little human whit* mualln tell, 
aa Alan Dale has titled her. In her new Belgian 
bourgeois comedy from the pen of Frants Fon- 
sou and Fernsnd Wlcheler. They sgree with 
bat a few exceptions that BUlle Barks has 
valiantly upheld her own — they recognise her 
personality and charm and give her credit for 
the ability that the little start exhibits. How- 
ever, their kindness does not extend as fsr ss 
the drama Itself for in 


pronounced too light — too shallow in substance 
to bid for continued popularity of Its own ac- 

Dale characterises the plot as very simple, 
somewhat too anaemic for the American audi- 
ence. He finds It too mushy for this continent 
but sweet and chuck full of simplicity to * de- 
gree that delights the Partslaaer and Brass*!- 
man and accounts for the European version's 
run In these two capital cities where It was 
entitled Le Marlage ds Mile. Beulemane. Like 
the Foolish Virgin, it misses real appreciation 
as does a book upon translation. If we want to 
be simple here we can be, wherefore aa impor- 
tation of this style loses out by comparison with 
our own productions.

German Actor 
Receives Ovation 

New York, Dec. 31 (Special to The Bill- 
board). — Ernest Von Possart, after many years' 
absence. Is bsck on our stage. Ernest Von Pos- 
sart. Intendant General of the Royal Theatres 
at Munich, snd probably the most famous actor 
that Germany now possesses, began a short sea- 
son at the Irving Place Theatre on December 
28. It baa been many years since the German 
favorite has visited this country. The aris- 
tocracy turned out to warmly greet Von Posssrt. 

who Is now almost a septuagenarian. The Times 
contributes the following account: 

"The play was Frermd Fritz, the old comedy, 
by Erekmsnn Chatrlan. This piece has been 
given here frequently by stock companies and by 
other stars, and Is from the same source as the 
opera. L'Amlco Fritz. It Is s simple story 
of farmer life, with a matchmaking old rabbi, 
s young fsrm proprietor, Fritz, snd Sasel, the 
dsughter of a farmer. The rabbi tblnks Fritz 
should get married, and cosxes blm ' 
mony by pretending to be In lor 
farmer's daughter himself.

The Koenigskinder 
Scores Big 

New York. Dec. 31 (Special to The Billboard). 
— Herr Hnmperdlnck is now being classed with 
Hans Andersen and Grimm and as the press re- 
marks they are paying him thereby the highest 
tribute In their power. No others have so 
piously realized that the Kingdom of Heaven Is 
the kingdom of little children. 

Particular mention la mad* of the score most 
Ingeniously and deftly wrought and artistically 
picturesque. It hss tender and sweet moments 
and It has short Inspirations of that melodious- 
ness ss of vernal woods snd leafy bird choirs, 
which are distinctive of the wbole trend of 
the author's musical .uoughts. He belongs In- 
deed to the aame school ss the before meutlonsd 
llterettenr*. It hss been very sbly remarked 
when compared to Haensel and Gretel that in a 
musical sense Haensel and Gretel la the Rhine, 
wthle Koenigskinder la a quiet backwater of 
that lovely stream. 

The story of the opera is symbolic and veiled 
In the atmosphere of folklore and embellished symphony which 

from the troublous ;

An excerpt from the Tribune will convey the 
appreciation with which the New Yorker her- 
alded this opera.

varying from ten to fifty cents. This theatre Is 
booked by William Morris. 

New Year's week the Ornbenm Theatre in this 
borough celebrates Its tenth anniversary. Percy 
G. Williams, Its manager, as well as Brooklyn 
theatregoers, both have reasons for congratula- 
tion at the completion of a decade In the 
theatre's history. It la probable tbat no play- 
house la the entire greater city has been ac- 
corded a larger share of public favor than has

Marie Dressier gave a Christmas dinner party 
on the stage of Harmanos Bleecker Hall Sunday 
nlgbt. Dec. 25. that was a bummer. It was to 
et-lpbrate the first birthday of Tillle Blobbs. of 
Time's Nightmare, who last Christmas was born 
on this sanie stage. This year of "Tulle's" 
growth has been a profitable one for Miss Dres- 
sier and she flatly told her manager. Lew 
Fields, that tbls Christmas she would play Al- 
bany or no place at all. 

So she arranged this Christmas dinner to 
which her company was invited and all the local 
crlMcs and dramatic paper representatives. The 
turkey and "flzln's" were brought from Miss 
Dres-dcr's farm at Windsor. Vt.. and after a 
strenuous rehearsal by the company, which bad 
been laid off a week, all bands sat down to 
the good things. When coffee and cigars were 
reached, speeches were In order. First came the 
hostess, who proposed a toast to "Tillle." Then 
William Dsltoo. friend, husband and "daddy" 
as Miss Dressier called him. Cheers and hur- 
rahs punctuated every speech. After this a 
piano was rolled up and calls for Miss Dres- 
sier to "oblige" were answered by a series of 
coon songs, given as only Marie Dreaaler can 
give them. Other members of the company 
sang, played snd told stories, and Miss Dres- 
sier assured them tbat If sbe fell 111 there waa 
i giva a fine vaudeville show.

_The record for practically every boose, at 
Cleveland waa broken on Christmas day. 81x 
policemen were necessary to keep back the 
crowds thst tried to get In the Prlscella snd

the big Hippodrome was taxed to its capacity. 
Houses In the snbnrban districts reported the 
same results. 

Every number on the Hippodrome bill wss an 
entertaining feature. Anita Dial's Monkeys 
opened the bill. They are particularly well

of artistically rendered selections. Lottie Wil-

one-act play. On Stony Ground, moved the 
audience to sadness and humor at will. 

Miss Williams' work Is tbat of a finished 
artist. Bothwell Browne, female Impersonator 
in girl types, has perhaps the best gestures 
of sny vaudeville performer wbo baa been 
seen In Cleveland this season. The three Leigh- 
tons, wbo have recently graduated from bur- 
lesnue, divided applause with the hesdllner, 
while Ellta Proctor Otla and Company, In Mrs. 
Banner's Ban, offered a style of comedy that 
made even the staid critics tango. Mme. Ade- 
laide Norwood was the feature while the Three 
Macagnos, comedy acrobats, closed the bill. 

The De Vere Stock Company, which baa been 
playing the season st the Castle Theatre, waa 
greeted with a pleasant surprise on Christmas

The Amusement Week in Europe 


Hammerstein Visits the English Metropolis to Negotiate 
for the Erection of His "Wonderhouse"— Princess 
Clementina Produced at Queen's Theatre 

Hammerstein came to London tbla week. He 
■ff» vtolt h» reference to the eonatruetlon 
-or Bis London open palace about which be 
wtaoeeto consult architect* and surveyors. 

According to him tola new theatre la to be 
the —waader-bonae" of the world; It to "to be 

Grand opera only to to 
too early, ao Hammerstein says, to _ 
about the arttota who will appear hot be 
they ahall be the beat In the world. In fact, 
no expense will be apared to produce (rand 
opera on a acale that will make the createat 
city In the world prood of Ita opera bouses. 

It la understood that the new enterprise Is 
entirely In the bands of Hsmmerstein. In fact, 
be apparently reaenta outside aaatotanca 

of any 

"Tlw secret of my ancceaa In part." he 
Jt told an interviewer, "baa been that I 
do not take snyone's adrice. I rely on my own 

eyea. ear* and experience. Opera director* are 

bom. not made, and I bare confidence In my 
«wn Judgment. I think grand opera la the 

highest possible form of art. I lore It and bp- 
cans* I lose It I. am rolnjr to do It In England." 

Many of as here will watch the course of Uam- 
merateln'i lodgment In the present Instance 
with moeb Interest. In fsct. if ba relies on It 
solely It will become even more Interesting. Bat. 
of coarse. If be be the (anion be lays claim to 
-be. then be will overcome tbe difficulties that 
await him In an enterprise of this kind In a 
strange co untr y with ease. 

The Princess Clementina, a historical novel 
baaed on A. E. W. Mason's novel. Clementina, 
was produced at tbe Queen's Theatre a few 
.nights ago. Tc • .lory is largely baaed on his- 
torical fact and moat of tbe characters who 
appear in the play are rounded on real per- 
sonages. It baa already been sen In the 
provinces and It waa received with so mnch 
favor on Ita appearance here that It la likely 
to hold the boards for some time. The Princess 
Bobrleakl waa the daughter of John Sobrieskl. 
tbe king of I'olsnd. and became tbe wife of the 
•old pretender, known among the Jacobite* as 
James III, of England. In order to prevent the 
marriage she was Imprisoned by tbe emperor at 
lunsbrnck and tbe story of tbe play turna on 
her deliverance by the aid Of Charles Wogan. 
•one of those gallant adventurous Irishmen who 
remained loyal to the Stuart cause. Tbe piece 
to full of Incident and color. In the task of 
rescuing tbe princess. Wogan undergoes many 
hair-breadth escapes. He la. however, somewhat 
bandy with his sword snd he manages to wonnd 
or kill bis pursuera and bla enemies every time. 
As happens often In sncb cases tbe princess 
falls In love with her deliverer and be had 
already been lo love with her. In tbe end. 
loyalty to the king triumphs over love for tbe 
woman and Wogan brings her safely to Bologna 
where Jamea was then living. H. B. Irving 
tskes the psrt or Wogan and acts with plctnr- 
esqoe cbsrm and Tlgur. At the samp time the 
role Is ore that la more fitted to Fred Terry or 
Lewis Waller and either of tbe latter wonld 
sblne therein. The part contain* a certain vein 
or humor, and like his father, Irving la not 
remarkable for tbe possession of this quality. 
Princess Clementina Is played by Miss Stells 
Patrick Campbell, daughter of "Mrs. Pat." 
with great grace and feeling hot not with any 
degree of power. Helena Rons waa the greatest 
s access. Sbe playa the character of the prin- 
cess' mother and gives a clever and amusing 
representation of that mighty and affected roy- 
alty. The otbr parta In the play are ex- 
cellently filled and tbe play being one of the 
best or the romantic type seen for some time, 
it ongbt to have a great future in front of It. 

Early In the new year. George Edwardea will, 
by arrangement with Charles Wyndham. produce 
Is Matrimony a Failure? at the Criterion. Paul 
Arthur Is to produce the piece and play one of 
the leading parta and the caat will also Include 



With Fred Terry and Julia Nellson returning 
borne. Oscar Ascbe and Lily Brayton will have 
to find a new borne for Count Hannibal, which 
attll draws enthusiastic and crowded audiences. 
This will be at tbe Carries Theatre, and then 
Laurence Irving In bla turn will have to look 
out for a new domicile for The Unwritten Law. 

Now tbat the removal of The Whip baa at 
last lert the gr at atage or Drnry Lane clear 
for pantomime rehearsals. Jack and tbe Bean 
stalk, particularly the beanatalk. la showing 
quick and conspicuous development. On tbla 
occasion greater heights In the form or mechan- 
ical arrangements are to be climbed than have 
ever been attempted before and aa nsual the 
management mean to spring one or two big sur- 
prise novelties on tbe audience. The principal 
girl will be Julia James, a pretty product of 
the Gaiety school, who has done well on both 
shies of the water in Our Miss GIbbs. 

Sunday kinematograph ahowa have been or- 
dered to cease In London for the present. I told 
yon a week or two ago that the magistrate 
had decided in their favor on this point, bnt 
since then the esse has been taken to the Court 
of Appeal and the judges there bare decided 
gainst the shows. The controversy arises on 
tbe point aa to whether under Kinematograph 
Act of last year the London County Council has 
the power to refuse licenses to any picture abow 
that opens on Sundays. I take It that the case 
will be carried to the Supreme Court of Appeal, 
but meanwhile tbe theatres must close their 
doors and thousands of. Londoners be " 
of a pleasant and harmless way of 
hour or two on Sunday evenings.

seemed bound to be a failure. Then the Man 
from Mexico came along, made a huge success, 
and changed the lnck of the place. The lateat 
development Is that F. C. Whitney has acquired 
a 09-year lease and will produce Alblnl'a new 
comic opera, entitled Baron Trenck, there on 
Easter Monday next. From tbat date on the 
theatre will be known as "The Whitney Thea- 

Talking of Whitney. It mnat be aald tbat he 
has really made an extraordinary bit with The 
Chocolate Soldier here. It has Just passed Its 
100th performsnce and looks like running for a 
great deal longer yet. Confirmed In his belief 
tbat high-class comic opera Is moat acceptable 
to London plsygoers, Whitney hss jnst visited 
Vienna and secured four new works which he 
proposes putting before the London public. Two 
of these operas. My Young Master and Tbe Lit- 
tle Friend, are from th« pen of Oscar Strauss, 
composer of Tbe Chocolate Soldier. On the 
sublect or the latter opera I mlgbt mention that 
a few nlgbts ago the principal part of Nadlnn 
waa undertaken at almost a moment's notice by 
Miss Pearl Ladd. the American soprano, who 
had only been studying the psrt for a few days, 
with Immense success.

whlcb bare done duty there for some years past

Americans have a different point of view on 
most things, snd the question of morality snd 
Immorality Is where we differ most from the 
French. It Is not for me to say which Is tbe 
right side snd which Is the wrong. All I ssy 
Is, It Is so. I mlgbt add, however, tbat we 
sometimes miss a good tblng because of this 
"point of view," for tbere are Instances of 
where It la carried to ths limit of prudery. 
Personally I tblnk nothing thst truly relates 
life can be really bad, any more than a lovely 
ststue lo the nude csn be bsd. so long aa It la 
reverently handled and tbat which to uplifting 
la not left blddeo. Tbere Is « certain morality to 
be found even In Immorality. 

Mme. Journaud la a widow. Sbe baa two 
daughters, the younger of whom Is Antoinette. 
Since tbe deatb of her husband abe haa stinted 
and ssved snd saerlflced In the Iboussnd ways 
s mother knows, to preserve a good "dot" for 
ber two girls when tbey marry. Georges Mar 
land, a hlg-beartrd fellow, all this time, baa 
been In love with Mme. Journaud, though abe 
haa never given htm the least encouragement. 
Her entire sttenllon snd her entire life are de- 
voted to her two girls. 

Presently the dsugbters are married, Antoi- 
nette to Leon Ouvrler. the older, who does not 
figure greatly In tbls story, being tbe first 
to wed. Now tbat the responsibility Is taken 
from ber. tbe mother listens to ber own besrt 
for tbe first time. Georges Is s good msn snd 
she loves blm, ss sbe now resllses. He Is mar- 
rled, living apart from his wife, from whom, 
through some complications, there csn be no 
divorce. Good, honest woman tbat abe Is, 
Mme. Joornsnd determines to go away wltb 
Georges anyway. They decide to spend some 

time together In Egypt. The soo-ln-lsw Is 
very much opposed to this trip, for the pontic 
is not nowise as to wbo wlU be tbe companion 

Of his mother-in-law. Rrapectfully be trim to 

persuade her from leavng. She leaves anyhow. 

When abe returns some time later she finds 
tbe household of Antoinette and Leon on the 
verge or rupture. Leon tells ber that Antoi- 
nette and be do not understand esch other. 
Antoinette ssys tbe same thing, as soon as 
the two women are left alone together. Ibw 
is very unhappy. Leon Is cold. But Leon, 
lo another scene wltb bis mother- la-law. tells 
ber thst he does not mean to be cold, and that, 
though be mlgbt love badly, be love* Antoinette 
Just the same, very deeply. He pleads tbat 
Mme. Journaud help him ksep ths loss or An- 
toinette from erasing entirely. 

Mixed in all this affair tbere Is aa agreeable 
fellow, named Edmond Danver. He Is laying 
siege to tbe heart or Antoinette. At first ber 

suspicions lolled to sleep by tbe plausible Kd- 
mond. tbe mother rather encouraged tbe affair.

Notes of the Latest Successes of American Song Writer* 
and the Vaudeville Performers by Whose Aid 
They Are Popularized 


Up tbe Rickety Stairs, the new comic song 
bit by Arthur J. Lamb and J. Fred Heir, la 
the biggest laughing success Lew Dockatader bss 
ever sung. It wss Introduced to Greater New 
York at the Majestic

all Those Endearing Young Charms, were the 
moat attractive features of the show, but were 
tar too little appreciated by the prosaic and 

polyglot audience which pscked the Pittsburg 
flayety, when I aaw the show. Mlaa Conlto- 
does a clever bit with Lew Kelly In the closing 
burlesque, which proves her ability aa an net 
rasa. This refers to her clever simulation of 
an Intoxicated woman, which la more than or- 
dinarily good. 

Grace Vinton. In tbe Ingenue role, la lovable, 
and her apotless appearance and simple win- 
someuesa aoon makes her a favorite. Margaret 
King. In ber old role of Frltxl Scbeff. Is tbe 
aaroc Margaret as she wss with tbe good old 
Pasting Review of a tew seasons ago. and her 
work It unchanged. Margaret leadt several 
numbers snd Incidentally shows ss much as pos- 
slbls of ber ramous perfect shsne, while tbe 
several numbers she leads are til nicely handled. 
She looka particularly good In tbe closing bur 
lesqoe In a peachy looking gown, and her song. 
There May be Something Wrong With My Kje». 
couldn't help bnt remind one of Mollle Williams, 
tor Margsret's every movement and style aug 
grated th* dashing Mollle. 

The olio contains but three acts, bnt all are 
good. Mullen and Coogan open the bill with a 
retlly clever talking act. Into which Is Intro- 
duced soms wooden shoe dancing of more than 
uanal merit. I do not claim to be an authorltv 
on dancing but I feel surt that Allan Congan 
other night that 
iTct a 

of a 

a sort of love and duty 

1m a 

deal « 

ont of the ordinary. 

Tbe second act on the olio bill la th* Six 
Jurgllng Blossoms, a aextette of neatly dre-sed 
and good-looking Knelled glrla, at leaat they 
bare an Engl lab. appearance. Their act constats 
of Joggling and throwing tennla racqueta and 
Indian clubs, the glrla doing some very pretty 
and clever work. They finish with a circular 
atage picture, throwing tbe cluba to each other 
at fair speed, tb* multi-colored objects flashing 
throuRh the sir snd lending plcturesqueness to 
tbe striking ensemble. The McGuinuett Bros., 
who wear a neat uniform to open their act. do 
some more dancing, snd do It well, snd In spite 
of their being the second .lancing act on the 
bill, arc a good-slaed hit. The burlesque opens 
Dp wltb sn Interior, supposed to be tbe Cafe 
De Paris. It only runs a few minutes, bat 
what there la of It la bright and quick. 

Lew Kelly retains tbe same character, while 
Turbett. who so distinguishes himself In tbe 
first part, la an abaotote Jcke aa the French 
waller. Why. oh why, doesn't ho change that 
to an Irlah character, or at leaat play It In some 
character of which he can handle tbe dialect. 

There are several very good numbers with tbe 
new Serenarter*. and a deal of originality It 
shown In their production. Some of the ldeaa 
are not new. bnt they are cleanly and care- 
fully worked ont and are therefore deserving 
of merit. Sleepy Head, led by Grace Vinton, 
assisted by the pontes, waa particularly attrac- 
tive, tbe glrla looking well In tbelr nretty bine 
allk pajama suits. The glrla finished wltb 
skipping- ropes, on* of them, who I believe was 
a deal of grace

of the prettiest numbers ever seen nnon s bor-

the sole survivor of healtb. wealth and legion 
of friends who wish him success In the later 
years of bio useful life. 

As much of a sphinx as 0. 8. Grant to all

In 1871 Mr. Cole came Into possession of the 
Circus, and after a few season* 
a menagerie. He also sdded from time 

circus In every way so that In 
W. W. Cole Show was second to none. During 
these seasons of prosperity Thus. Mclntyre was 
his faithful euuestrlan director who In every 
way looked after the splendid performances 
fir en In the *rwo rings each day to thousands 
of pleased attendant*. 

In erery way Mr. Colo was progressive and 
appeared to never fear competition or opposi- 
tion so-called by to*.' profession, and the writer 
well remembers when the Cole 8how and the 
then famous Van Amours. Belche Sc. Co. Cir- 
cus showed same day and date at Norwich. X. 
T.. July 7. 1SS5. 

Mr. Cole Is a man of deeds, not words, as the 
writer has before stated, he is reticent and de- 
liberate, asking no personal glorification, and in 
many particulars parrallels the life of Mr. 
James A. Bailey, his predecessor of the fa- 
mous Barnnm and Bailey Shows. In the man 
Ipclation of the circus and menegarie which 
bore bis own name, Mr. Cole demonstrated both 
his mettle and his metal. At no time during 
his managerial career did he become a Tlctlm 
to an overloading ambition. He never got what 
la now known as the enlargement craze, but woo 
n^fortune^wlth an adequately^ equipped at 

the writer begs a few mlnotes of 
Indulgence to state that "The " 
the able management of that 
Mr. George ConkHtt. during the after show has 
probably never been eqnsled or Improved upon, 
even at this later day of great acta and won- 
ders. All of his performances were always of a 
high grade of excellence, satisfying and calcu- 
lated to add to the reputation of the show. 

In his selection of nontenants he proved his 
wisdom and forethought by surrounding himself 
with such able stars of their different life 
falling as Messrs. Louis E. Cooke, who to now 
considered the greatest agent of the day, and 
William B- Hayden and Barney Gaylord. 

There could not possibly be any more appre- 
ciative manager than Mr. w. W- Cole whenever 
be held the reins and directed the advance 
movements of a show; no director ever had at 
i loyal and capable staff. When 
I his employ, he depsrt- 

ot the above 
mentioned agents of Mr. Cole, took op the man- 
agement of Thomas W. Keene. the famous 
tragedian, as a personal venture. Mr. Cole at 
the parting placed In Hayden's hand a check 
for a large amount with the suggestion that 
be might need it in promoting his new attrac- 
tion. " 

As It turned out. Hayden did not find It nec- 
essary to cash the check and It was returned 
with grateful thanks to the generous former 

During Mr. Cole's individual management he 
always bad a feature to boom and never failed 
to make the moat of It In all his forma of 
advertising, whether It waa a pair of giants 
like Captain Bates and wife, or an elephant of 
unusual size. He wss a great believer In the 
good use of circus paper and Mr. Cole was one 
of the first to use lithographed posters exten- 

— sheet 

To advertise a pair of giants, their litho- 
graphs on the billboards towered above the 
balance of the display and always attracted ex 

to the i 

being afraid to 
la now practiced by all" 
of thai day and Is not confined 
walks of business life. 
" Discreetly venturesome, this bold manager fre- 
quently visited, remote parts of the Union to 
great profit, and It was hto policy with hto 
com p act show to get Into territory first, 
gather the - harvest, and swing into pastures 
new with the first paper op and the first 
show of the season, preferring to lead the way 
rather than to follow. 

Cole was not a "not until" manager; he al- 
ways preferred to pay for 

Mr. J - B . 

ful employes of Mr. Cole, had lost returned 
from a foreign tour of the Cooper & Bailey 
Shows, which had played in Australia. Java 
and South America rejoined his old love, the 
W. W. Cole Show In 1878 and remained with 
this organization for three years; during this 
time the show went to Australia- The writer 
has a photograph amongst his collection of the 
W. W. Cole Show crowd which nude that mem- 
orable Australian trip. The photograph shows

With a barren treasury, the man of silence and 
sense did not despair. All hto attaches In every 
department bad confidence In the cool, self- 
contained msnsger, who proceeded to reap vic- 
tory from defeat. Comparatively a stranger in

at every stand. In all his career he 

Manv anecdotes may be related of hto char- 
acter^ " Before the days of sdvertlslng 
cars, when the advance agents and billets trav- 
eled with box outfits for the billposters, and 
sometimes called "box brigades.'' Mr. Cole 
called the attention of Gaylord and Hayden. lus 
agents, to tbe collection of personal baggage 
carried by the agent and the paste brigade, and 
suggested that things would have a better 
appearance on arriving at hotels if some uni- 
formity of grips should be sdopted to replace 
the collection of old-style carpet bags, grip- 
sacks of all sizes, ages and styles. In use. 
The handy dress suit cases and telescopes of 
the present day were unknown articles. Gay- 
lord and Hayden acted on the advice at once, 
equipping themselves and party with the largest 
kind of cheap black enameled grips, on each of 

which they bad lettered In white In the largest 
possible letters the name of tbe owner and 
"W. W. Cole's Circus and Menagerie." 

Mr. Cole. In one of his flying trips to the ad- 
vance, awaited the force at a hotel office In 
Salt Lake City. Utah, until the men with the 
huge grips reached town and marched lo In In- 
dian flle and dnmped their baggage in the cor- 
ner of the hotel office In a heap. The ridic- 
ulous uniformity of baggage wss too much for 
the rlsibles of tbe chief, be had to smile, al- 
though he was probably vexed at the way In 
which Gaylord and Hayden had executed hto 

Some of the billposters that were with the 
bunch at that time are now living, and after 
reading these lines may cause a smile to come 
to their faces In memory of those good old 
trooping days before the entree of tbe beauti- 
ful lj-eqtiipp"pd advance cars of this present 


Ileth century period. 

Cole the 


Those who served 
agreed that In no _ 
him in the least excited or disturbed. With 
the show he wss about the last person to be 
taken for the manager and owner. He saw 
all and said little, but when he spoke. It meant 
something. It was bis wont to draw aside on 
the show lot^and^ keep^an eye ot 


great elet bant. "Sampson, 
started on a rampage of 
tlon. A frightened attache ran out of tbe 
tent and found Mr. Cole doing a thinking act 
on the top rail of a fence, probably formulating 
a route roup. 

"Mr. Cole!' 
tidings. "Sampson Is 
thing to pieces." 

The msnsger betrayed no emotion, but calmly 
uttered: "Some one will have to catch and 
fasten him.** 

Having accumulated a fortune, Mr. Cole re- 
tired from active business, bnt on tbe with- 
drawal of James A. Bailey from tbe Arm of 
Bamnm. Bailey and Hutchinson, be. wltb the 
late James E. Cooper, became associated In the 
management. When Mr. Bailey recuperated 
and returned from abroad, he bought a hslf In- 
terest In tbe Barnnm outfit and announced P. 
T. Barnnm and James A. Bailer 

ft was then said. "Cole _ 
bnt such did not prove to he tbe 
the deatb or Mr. Barm 
terested with James A. 

SeHs Show and Buffalo Bill's Wild West, and 
only withdrew from both these ventures at 
quite a recent date. 

In December. 1908. Mr. William W. Cole was 
elected the new managing director of the Rar- 
nnm and Bailey Show. Limited, snd entered his 
office with all tbe qualifications necessary to 
successfully control tbe affairs of the glgsntic 
Institution, back and front. 

In assuming command of the then representa- 
tive American show. William W. Cole found 
himself surrounded by a superior staff who 
long had served Jsmes A. Bailey st home and 

Mr. Bailey had one special quality among 
the many he possessed, which endeared h'm to 
those who were nearest him and bis prln<-!nal 
advisers; he was not s seeker sfter new lien- 
tenants: be held to the old hearts, tried and 
true, and gained by their experience. No one 
was discarded by Mr. Bailey because of gain-

ample tbe writer might refer to snrh gentle- 
men ss "Tody" Hamilton. Lonls E. Cooke. Hsr-

beaded by Comete Vlrante (The Human Com-

On the opening night Mme. Aboukala seem-

thus sustaining s frightful fall. The Idea, of 
coarse, la to land on one's cheat and stomach 
at the top of the Incline and slide downward 
to a fall stop. The performer was picked op 
bleeding at the month and nose. Women 
screamed and fainted. Men cried out. The 
aodlence waa soon In s tumult of excitement, 

No one

at the cat atarted on again and newcomers 
woold take their places. Some seemed to pity 
the suffering animal, others appeared 
no emotion on the subject whatever.

will not be an exhibition but rather a place of 
pleasure and amusement. The new owner de- 
clares that It will be tbe scene of a more varied 
and Interesting variety of entertainment than 
has ever been broogbt together in one place. 

The new version of Salome, produced here 
after a quarrel of years with tbe Censor, bag 
{net made Its appearance, and although there 
has been an extraordinary rush for seata. no 
one seems to have a good word to say for It. 
Tbe condition on which' it paased tbe Censor 
aras that the actual head should not be used on 
the stage and consequently tbe lady, after tbe 
execution, has to be content with brandishing 
> charger on the stage with tbe bead missing. 
This In Itself tends to make the whole thing 
unreal bnt, added to this, everything else about 

bnt waa quieted by the stage manager, wbo 
came out and talked to the people. After 
reaching her dressing room Mme. Abonkala 
recovered consciousness and It waa discovered 
that she waa not fatally hurt, though a broken 
nose and cut month showed tbe fall to be both 
severe and painful at any rate. It ta an- 
nounced that aa soon aa the daring woman 
recovers she will retake ber place on tbe bill. 

The Adams Pantomime Troupe of ten peo- 
ple forma one of the big acta composing tbe 
remainder of tbe program. Walter Rellonlnl, a 
Juggler; Dlz and Doz, comedians and lnstrn- 
mentslists; The Ascot t Olrls (Engllab), five 
In number, dancers : Mason and Forbes, come- 
dians; Charller, ventriloquist; The Trio Scblaz, 
cyclists, snd others, are big run-makera at 
this theatre. 


Are the FoIIea Bergere and tbe Olympla the- 
atres or music halls? At esch place revues of 
the Follies sort are given on a regular stage, 
though s spectator may take a drink and look 
at tbe ahow at the- same time. The French 
government declares that therein Ilea tbe dif- 
ference from a "regular" theatre; one can not 
drink and see tbe abow at tbe same time In a 
theatre. The question was brought about by tbe 
management of these two bouses aaklng to be 
allowed to pay tbe taxes required by id or- 
dinary playhouse Instead of those put upon 
music halls. Tbey bsaed their claim on tbe 
ground that tbey ran regular theatres In every 
way. The State declared, however, that inas- 
much as drinks were served In a part of tbe 
theatre from which a view of tbe atage might 
be obtained, neither the Follea Bergere nor the 
Olympla waa a tbeatre. Both are mualc halls 
and will have to pay the blgber tax.

O. I— Hall, of the Journal: "It la thoroughly 
native, its story Is free of Improbability, snd 
ltt speech, alwayt tpt and pointed, alto It free 
snd natural. It la scted for all It la worth 
by a nicely-balanced comedy company, and 
therefore It la very much worth while." 

Amy Leelle. of the Newt: "With the splendid 
cast intact, which made a great bit of Tbe 
Country Boy. one of tbe season's easiest tri- 
umphs. Powers' Theatre entertained yesterday. 
And no prettier, saner, neater and more Amer- 
ican play has entered the Jousts of stage liter- 
ature this tournament year. Besides It baa a 
faultleae catt of tbe best comedians, legitimate 
and true, that a play could ask." 

James O'Donnell Bennett, of the Record- 
Herald: "This play la altogether American In 
Its outlook on life, homely, unaffected, cordial 
and direct. It It a good play for young peo- 
ple to see."

touched up with sprightly observation and there 
la a brief emotional snrge that carries It safe- 
ly beyond tbe bounds of tbe mere trilling. It 
commanded the tear of sentiment list eve- 
ning tnd It evoked many a carefree langh. In

and that purpose Is tr> sharpen tbe wits with 
pungent. Ironic reflection on certain ralpible

Eric Delamarter. of the Inter-Ocean: "An- 
other charming little piece, with several smiles, 
a f*v teart and a heroic thongbt In the laat 
aet. There Is subtlety In Ha coi 
clarity la Its speech: It Is light

remarked: "It la a breeay. trifling, slippery bit

Shaving Outfit on 'No Game of Chance' Raffle Plan 



Here is the plan: An outfit consists of a Raffle Card, 30 cakes of Pearl Denti- 
frice and a $4.50 Shaver's Outfit. The dealer sells a cake of Pearl Dentifrice for 
lc. to 25c., giving with each cake a free chance on the Shaver's Outfit. The 
cost of each cake of Pearl Dentifrice corresponds with the number drawn, except 
numbers from 26 to 30 inclusive, which cost 25c. each. The^total amount realized 

on 30 cakes is $4.50. Com plat* Outfit

This is positively the most attractive proposition that has ever been offered 
to Merchants. *'.:.'• 

Cigar Storsts, Billiard Halls, Drug Storaa, Ntws Stand*, etc., will 

buy, on sight, from one to ten Outfits. 

Because the inducements to the customer, are greater than are offered on 
similar propositions," each getting a 25c. cake of Dentifrice. 

Because it can be worked in cities where the regular raffle plan is not allowed. 
Because a Shaver's Outfit mak.i an Ideal Holiday Gift, and the 

chance of getting one for lc. will appeal to everybody. 

Everything you make will be in addition toyour regular earnings, because 
you can do this work evenings or on rainy days. From $5.00 to $20.00 per 
evening isn't too much to expect — that means but 4 to 16 Outfits. 

We also have a straight Raffle Card Plan on the Shaver's Outfit. On the 
card there are 25 numbers. Each person pays the amount of the number drawn,

In melodrama, as in other things, history repeats itself. The falling 
off in patronage in popular-priced melodrama during the past two years, 
and which has caused so much < :onsternation among those who interests 
are involved, is only a repetition of what occurred a dozen or fourteen 
years ago. At that time, it will be recalled, H. R. Jacobs occupied the 
position of dictator in the held devoted to the production of melodrama. 
He owned or controlled a score of houses throughout the country, 
with which were affiliated sufficient others for him to give a whole sea- 
son's booking to an attraction. With him, at the acme of his power and 
success, -was 'associated F. F. Proctor, now of the firm of Keith & 
Proctor. The height of their success was also the highest pinnacle of 
success of melodrama up to that time. There was no forewarning of 
a- decline in the business; no prelibation of a waning in interest and 
patronage on the part of the theatre-going public. But in less than one 
season, the popularity of melodrama as a form of amusement fell from 
its highest to its lowest ebb. There was a panic among those managers 
whose capital and experience had gone into the business. But their 
efforts to forestall the crash were ineffectual. Companies were with- 
drawn from the road and disbanded; houses were closed; the firm of 
Jacobs & Proctor dissolved, and for several years there was little ac- 
tivity in the world of popular-priced melodrama. But conditions of this 
kind are rotary; they come in circles, as it were. Melodrama again be- 
gan to take on a semblance of life and activity ; the people themselves 

began to clamor for it; the theatres that had been closed were reopened. 
Then Stair & Havlin entered the field. They associated the theatres 
devoted to this class of attractions into the most extensive circuit of its 
kind ever known. Their generalship; their ability for foreseeing con- 
ditions ; their resourcefulness and power have placed them among the 
most influential of theatrical booking agents and producers. It would 
now seem that they must exert their influence, that they must marshal 
their forces and operate their experience in another direction and along 
entirely new lines. To use the phrase of the streets, it's "up to them" to 
revivify the public interest in melodramatic attractions. It's a greater 
work that awaits them. The consensus of opinion is rather against than 
for their success. 

The present season is the most unprofitable for melodrama that we 
have witnessed in a decade. The blame for this has been laid at the 
door of the motion picture theatre. Others say that the people are sur- 
feited of melodrama, and want something different. This seems to have 
been the belief of managers and producers a year or two ago, when 
musical numbers were interpolated into the melodramatic productions, 
and some of the theatres devoted exclusively to melodrama in past years 
were booked with light musical attractions. 

It's impossible to say just what the cause of the decline of melo- 
dramatic popularity is. But that there is a decline, is manifest; and 
that there must be a remedy is obvious. For our own part we have 
absolute confidence in the ability of those who are at the head of this 
branch of the business to bring about the desired metamorphosis. It's 
only a question of how soon can they do it, and how greatly will thost

Attraction* at Fairs 

Dturing^he last few years, the "side show" feature of the agricultural 

fair has undergone a complete metamorphosis, whereas the "rag front" 
attraction ( ?) engaged haphazard and without care or thought, either 
as to its moral or edifying influence, prevailed in the past, the gilt front 
show of to-day, with its performance of real merit has entirely super- 
seded it. Though it has been slow, gradual and logical, it has been 
worked out along logical lines, upon which there is no prospect of retro- 
Session. The fake show of yesterday has passed almost entirely from 
the amusement category. The wild man, the two-headed boy, etc., have 
been relegated to the annals of amusement history, if they are. to be re- 
membered at all. To-day the attractions are of a real, educational nature. 

True, there may not be much that is edifying in a performance of trained 
vnld beasts, but such a show is sensational and amusing, without being 
deleterious .even to morals or self-respect. It is like the acrobatic per- 
formance where long training, patience and perseverance are rewarded 
J>y the plaudits of the people; elicited by the feats performed. On the 

to the attraction that 

other hand, there is a distinct educational 
partakes of the nature of an exhibit, and these, i 
have become too numerous to classify. 

The reason for this salutary change may be found in the increasing 
amusement experience of fair secretaries. These officials are, tCMlay, 
chosen as much because of their knowledge of the amusement business 
as for their ability to handle their department of the agricultural fair 
feature. The prospect for the enterprise was never more brilliant than 
it is to-day. . 

Possibly no other enterprise in America during the past fifteen years 
has grown and developed more rapidly than music publishing. Whereas 
a generation ago a song was popularized slowly, gradually, and by means 
of its running from one end of the country to the other, without going 
into any extensive edition, the popular song to-day becomes so, practi- 
cally in all parts of the country at once, and is purchased by hundreds 
of copies in every town within the period of a very few weeks. The 
change of conditions is very largely, if not entirely, due to the influence 
of the musical performers, vocalists and concert artists. Publishers 
have not been blind to this fact. There is not a large music publishing 
house in the country to-day that does not employ every facility for pro- 
viding performers with "professional" copies of their product. A gener- 
ation ago music publishing in the United States was unprofitable, and 
was usually carried on as a subsidiary branch of some other business. 
The publisher issued his output tentatively and conservatively. A few 
hundred or a thousand copies were many months in selling, even though 
the piece might be played, whistled and sung by many thousands of 
people during that time. To-day it is not unusual for a musical com- 
position or a song to run into the sale of five hundred thousand or even 
seven and eight hundred thousand copies in a comparatively short period 
of time. The ratio of sales of sheet music has been in the same pro- 
portion as the increase in piano sales in the United States. Every modest 
home, where there is any pretense to culture and sociability, is now 
provided with a piano. Naturally, this increases the demand for sheet 
music, and though the popularity of a piece may be short-lived, its sale 
is usually extensive enough during the brief period in which it is featured 
in the music stores to make the pretentious publishing establishments of 
our big cities possible. 

It is often charged that performers who use almost exclusively the 
productions of a single publishing house, receive a salary almost equal 
te that paid by the booking agent or manager of the theatre m which 
they perform, no matter how large that salary may be. Sometimes a 
performer is charged with "popularizing^ the current hits of several 
publishing houses at once, and with receiving a monetary compensation 
from each of them. . _ 

It is not our purpose here to discuss this phase of the question. Our 
mentioning it was only for the purpose of citing an evidence of the 
value of the vaudeville prof ession as anadjunct to the music publishing 

Up to this time there has been no real association formed amon? 
music publishers. Each acts independently and according to the rules 
of his own business. There is "corner" in song writers, and those who 
are able to turn out compositions that become popular have been numer- 
ous enough to supply the demands of all the various publishers, who 

maintain regular staffs and pay big salaries and commissions to their 

regular "staffs and pay big 


It-is somewhat remarkable that soiar only a few really commercial 
men, that is, men of essentially commercial ability, have interested them- 
selves in the music publishing business, and that it has remained in the 
hands mostly of song writers themselves, who have been successful and 
prosperous, and have built up publishing houses of their own. What 
the future of the music publishing business in America will be, it is 
difficult to say. Some of our biggest publishing houses are even now 
rated very high in commercial reports. There is little, doubt that with 

time the allurements of profits will have their effect upon men of com- 
mercial ability and large means, and the whole system will be changed. 
Whatever the future of the music publishing business, it is not unworthy 
of the brains and ability of the men who are making o.f it a really " 
portant factor of our artistic and business- life.

A room of novel beauty Is this lobby. Its 
color scheme combines the rich shadings of Para- 
nasal marble. Spanish leather and old gold with 
a touch of mahogany and dull brass. The wains

with dull . rose gold leaf, the whole giving s

the really comfortable and roomy 
center of the house one's sttcntlon 
Is first attracted to the new arrangement of the 
boxes on either aide of • tbe proscenium arch. 
Three of these are on the ground floor on each 
aide and three above them, tbe center one of 
the upper tier rals-d a considerable distance 
above the other two. These aa well as the arch 
Itself are finished In old Ivory and dull gold. 
At Intervals between the boxes are tall. Anted 
pOlara In tbe rococco or Louis Qulnse style which 
haa been followed with considerable consistency 
throughout the theatre. On tbe capitals of these 
columns are groups of gilded cherubs playing 
various musical Instruments, while over the 
proscenium arch and seemingly supporting tbe 
roof are four figures, comic and tragic. Be- 
tween these are paintings of dancing nymphs. 
The boxes themselves are finished off with heavy 
brass rails snd green velvet hangings. They con- 
tain comfortable Austrian bentwood chairs.

When food racoUcctlona preaent ttaem to view." 

I •' 

There are probably no words more beautifully coined from the En- 
glish language and from the. pen of our famous American writer than 
the above lines. They almost parallel the sayings of the Nazarene. All 
nations have their sentiments, which when thrown together form one 
world-wide, great sympathetic thought, which are chained together as 
one single mind, from which is born the ever-mystic words, "Love of 
childhood memory days." 

What childhood life has been complete without its romance of fai- 
ries, "the cute little people" of the woods, the mysterious elves, their 
pranks and their moonlight. roamings? 

The fairy tales of youthful days have taken actual-form. The Lil- 
iputian Village, now a fixture, and one of the great Paris life features, 
is a living dream, and as one wanders around this toy-like city, with tiny 
houses, horses no larger than dogs, and coaches that bring to mind the 
transformation of the pumpkin, as in the well-known fairy tale of old, 
and the little people themselves, one feels like a giant, who in his wrath 

might crush any one of these midgets with the uplifting of a foot. 

Our minds may revert back to 
the days of good old King Arthur's 
court, or old King Cole, "who was a 
merry old soul," and we find our- 
selves thinking of that wonderful 
little man known to the wide world 
as Tom Thumb. The name will 
probably never pass away, but will 
last as long as eternity. 

Phineas Taylor Barnum, the 
world's greatest showman, was the 
lucky gentleman to give to the 
American and European public a 
chance of seeing and talking with 
Tom Thumb, His wife, Minnie War- 
ren, and Commodore Nutt, all of 
whom the writer of this sketch was 
acquainted with. Using Mr. Bar- 
num's language to the writer, so as 
to make no mistake, I will try and 
quote him as near as I can remem- 
ber. In November, 1842, Mr. Barnum, at Bridgeport, Conn., heard 
of. a remarkably small child, and at his request, his brother, Philo F. 
Barnum brought him to the hotel. "He was not two feet high; he 
weighed less than sixteen pounds, and was the smallest child I ever 
saw that could walk alone ; but he was a perfectly formed, bright-eyed 
little fellow, with light hair and ruddy cheeks, and he enjoyed the best 
of health. He was exceedingly bashful, but after some coaxing, he was 
induced to talk with me, and he told me that he was the son of Sher- 
wood E. Stratton, and that his own name was Charles S. Stratton. Af- 
ter seeing him and talking with him, I at once determined to secure his 
services from his parents, and to exhibit him in public. I engaged him 
h*t four weeks at three dollars ($3.00) a week, with all traveling and 
boarding charges for himself and his mother at my expense. 

"We came to New York City Thanksgiving Day, December 8, 1842, 
and I announced the dwarf on my American Museum bills as "General 
Tom Thumb." I took the greatest pains to educate and train my dimin- 
utive prodigy, devoting many hours to the task by day and by night, and 
I was very successful, for he was an apt pupil, with a great deal of na- 
tive talent and a keen sense of the ludicrous. 

"I afterwards re-engaged him for one year at seven dollars ($7.00) 
a week, with a gratuity of fifty dollars at the end of the engagement, and 
the privilege of exhibiting him anywhere in the United States, in which 
e\ ent his parents were to accompany him, and I was to pay all trav- 
eling expenses. He speedily became a public favorite, and long before 
the year was out, I voluntarily increased his weekly salary to twenty- 
five dollars ($25.00), and he fairly earned it." 

In 1862 Mr. Barnum also heard of an extraordinary dwarf girl 
named Lavinia Warren, who was residing with her parents at Middle- 
boro, Mass., and he sent an invitation to her and her parents to come 
and visit him at Bridgeport, Conn. They canie and he found her to be 
a most intelligent and refined young lady, well educated, and .an ac- 
complished, beautiful and perfectly developed woman in miniature. He 
succeeded in making an engagement with her for several years, during 

which she contracted — as dwarfs are said to have the power to 
visit Great Britain, France and other foreign lands. 

Having arranged the terms of her engagement, he took her to the 
house of one of his daughters in New York City, where she remained 
quietly while Mr. Barnum was procuring her wardrobe and jewelry 
and making arrange Tents for her debut. He purchased a very splendid 
wardrobe for- Miss Warren, including scores of the richest dresses that 
could be procured, costly jewels, and, in fact, everything that could add 
to the charms of her naturally charming little person. . V . 

She was then placed on exhibition at the American Museum, and 
from the' day of her debut she was an extraordinary success. Commo- 
dore Nutt was on exhibition with her, and although he was several years 
her junior, he evidently took a great fancy to her. One day Mr. Barnum 
presented to Lavinia a diamond and emerald ring, and as it did not ex- 
actly fit her finger, he told her he wpuld get her another one, and that 
she- might present this one to the Commodore in her own name. ' She 
did so, and an unlooked-for effect was speedily apparent; the little 
Commodore, felt sure that thL was a love-token, and poor Lavinia was 

in .the greatest trouble, for she considered herself quite a woman, and 

. ' •-. •- regarded- the Commodore only as a 

nice little boy. But she did not like 
to offend him, and while she did 
not encourage, she did not openly 
repel his attentions. Miss Lavinia 
Warren, however, was never des- 
tined to be Mrs. Commodore Nutt. 

However the old saying is that 
"love leveleth all matters," and Mr. 
Barnum was told that Mr. Tom 
Thumb had won the heart of Miss 
Lavinia Warren, and that the wed- 
ding day was announced. It cre- 
ated an immense excitement. La- 

t Wr ' ■ 

vinials levees at the Museum were 
crowded to suffocation, and her 

photographic pictures were in great 
demand. For several weeks she 
sold more than three hundred dol- 
lars' worth of her "cartes de yisite" 
each day, and the daily receipts at 
the Museum were frequently over three thousand dollars. 

At last the famous wedding day arrived, Tuesday, February io, 
1863. The cererony took place in Grace Episcopal Church, New York 
City, the Rev. Junius Willey, rector of St. John's Church in Bridgeport, , 
Conn., assisted by the late Rev. Dr. Taylor, of Grace Church, officiating. 
The organ was presided over by Professor Morgan. Nothing better 
could have been done by Mr. Barnum had the wedding of a prince of 
the royal blood been in contemplation. The church was comfortably 
filled by a highly select congregation of ladies and gentlemen, none be- 
ing admitted except those having cards of invitation. Among them 
were governors of several of the states, to whom Mr. Barnum had sent 
cards, and such of those as could not be present in person, were repre- 
sented by friends to whom they had given their cards. Members of 
Congress were present, also generals of the army, and many other prom- 
inent public men. 

Numerous applications were made from wealthy and distinguished 
persons for tickets to witness the ceremony, and as high as sixty dollars 
was offered for a single admission. But not a ticket was sold, and Tom 
Thumb and Lavinia Warren were pronounced "man and wife" before 
witnesses. Miss Minnie Warren, sister of the bride, and Mr. Commo- 
dore Nutt, acted as bridesmaid and groomsman to the happy couple- 
Rich men vied with each other in showing their appreciation of this 
wonderful little couple by showering them with a most miscellaneous 
assortment of gifts. A sewing machine, perfect in every detail, one and 
one-half feet in height, was given to Mrs. General Tom Thumb by a 
manufacturer. There was a piano no higher than the seat of a chair the 
keys of which were about the size of a blade in a small penknife, and 
with the full number of octaves; chairs, beds, etc., all made of the choic- 
est wood and upholstered in the finest satins, resembling furniture fit 
for the ordinary doll. Then, through the generosity of Mr. Barnum, 
who always took a great interest in the young couple, began a dazzling

Vesta Victoria, than whom' there Is no English 
comedienne more popular, on this aide of the At-

(Inc.) American Music Hall ' last week. She 
came with a brand new repertoire of songs, 
each of which, was sung with appropriately gro- 
tesque costume. They- comprised 8katlng, In 
an elastic bound bobble skirt; Arcady, in a cos- 
ter conception of a bucolic costume: and Now 
I Havs To Can -His Father, in a blanket dress. 
Her Infectious good humor, her droll personal-

the American patrons to a high pitch of enthu- 
siasm; ■ nor would the applause subside until 
Vesta had consented to sing Poor John, one of 
her earlier- s u cce s s e s. 

The - other star feature of the bill was the 
sketch IntrodnclnK Joe Welch In hla new- Italian 
Impersonation. It la called at Ellis Island, and 
tells a. pathetic tale, of a poor Dago laborer, who 
saves sixty dollars by the most terrible deprl-

The Squaw-man at 
Broadway Theatre 

New York. Jan. 6 (Special to The Billboard). 
— One of the moat acceptable melodramas. The 
Sqnaw-man, Is at present playing at the Broad- 
way, scheduled to leave Saturday. January 14. 
It Is an excellent ' opportunity for this com- 
mendable play to prove that real meritorious 
melodramas csn enjoy longevity as well ss Its 
deeper snd more noble relative — the drama. 
Of course, with Dostln Farnnm In tbe leading 
role It bss been given an excellent and moat 
able Interpreter, as the press Is willing to 
admit. Tbe Times published this appreciation: 

"Dnatln Farnnm, who has one of the moat 
Ingratiating personalities on oar stage and who 
la. moreover, an excellent actor, appears in the 
title role. He crestes all the eympathy 
ble. which, by tbe wsy. Is a greet deal. 

Hackett. Monday, January 2, haa Indeed 
a favorable introduction for tbe youthful an 
who, no doubt, has been sufficiently 
to produce further work In this line. 

The clever story deals with two cooplea who 
set out upon a honeymoon trip up the Hudson. 
One bridegroom and one bride become so, eb 
sorbed in attending to trunks and luggage oa 
tbe pier that tbe boat sella off carrying their 
respective mates. The passengers tske ' 
fox newlyweda. and as both are of the 
sort, the situation runs into all aorta of 
calltlea. especially when they And themselves at 
a hotel where they are expected to reglatr as 
man and wife. Tbe story Is worked out with 
much stage skill and witty dialogue. 

Tbe Sun In commenting upon Overnight sug- 
gests tbst tbe farce could advantageously elim- 
inate certain places of vulgarity In the play, 
for In many places tbe lines are clever 
to elicit laughter without the aid of man 
nen. Tbe Times observes as follows: 

"Overnight Is as full as Seven Dsys of parti 
tbst line np equally In Importance, and there are 
minor roles tbst everybody seemed to relish. 
Tbe smile on the dnaky face of the boat stew- 
ard won an answering grin from tbe other aide 
of the footlights, and Arthur P. Ayleswortb. ss 
the clerk st the botei, with red silk socks, his 
mandolin, snd the scornful wsys of him were 
received with pleasure. But tbe two who seemed 
to win tbe most favor from the audience were 
Margaret Lawrence and Herbert A. Yost, as tbs

also, tbe 8. B. 0. signs are gotten ready. This 
time, while a nlc*. comrortable business wss 
done at most houaea. tbere waa nowhere near 
tbe crowd tbat waa expected. 

A convenience tor tbe patrons ot tbe WUHs 
Wood Theatre la a card that la passed to the 
audiences, whereon one may write hla name and 
address and telephone number, and tbe man- 
agement will mall to blm each week the name 
ot tbe abow at the Willi* Wood, and some In- 
formation and data about It. In thla way one 
can alwaya keep In touch with theatricals. Mr. 
O. H. Buckley, business manager or tbe Willie 
Wood, aaya tbat he la very much pleaaed with 
the Idea, aa It Is proving very satisfactory, and 
he tblnka la bringing more business to th* the- 
atre. While, of coarse, every one resds the 
ITS every day. It might be luet the 
or evening that one would miss that 
I the theatrical newa. and with thla 
Information from tbe theatre direct, the the- 
atregoer can nae his own discrimination about 
tbe attractions. 

Mr. Earl Steward, resident manager of tbe 
Sam S. Sbnbert Theatre, regretted very mncb 
to have to announce to the audience that bad 
come to tbe Sbnbert to see Loula Mann In The 
Cheater. Wednesday Matinee. December 28, that 
there would be no Wednesday matinee on ac- 
count of Mr. Mann'a being a little hoarse. Mr. 
Mann aald that be didn't understand tbere was 
to b, a Wedneadaj jgHgSg gg 

special matinee Mo _ 

contract only called for two matinees s week. 
Tbe company bad all assembled at the the- 
atre awaiting Mr. Maoo. when Mr. Earl Stew- 
ard called blm up at his hotel and round that 
Mr. Mann didn't know about the matinee. Then 
It was that Mr. Steward had to announce to tbe 
audience tbat tbere would be "no matinee to- 
day." and aald tbelr money would be refunded 
at tbe box offlce. 

The week from December 25 to January 2 
was one of tbe blgaeat In the many big weeks 
of the Orpheum - , history. This week saw ca- 
pacity at every matinee, and that'* a big thing 
when It la remembered tbat the Ornhenm baa 
dally matinees, and tbe evening performances 
bad tbe 8. R. 0. sign In working order. Mr. 
Martin Lehman, resident manager of the Or- 
pheum. aald he waa very mnch pleased with tbe 
Orp brum's success.

JANUARY 14, 1911. 

The Amusement Week in Europe 


Day with Its Wealth of Pantomimic Productions 
>ndit ions in Theatrical Circles Far 
From Being Satisfactory 

Boxing day u only a conple or days off. and 
-torn pantomime of all aorta and conditions will 
spring themselves upon as from one end of Great 
Britain to the other. From the elaboration and 
trlumpna of stage mechanism of Jack and The 
BeanaUlk at Drury Lane, down to toe humble 
stowing of Cinderella, at a tiny at op, all win 
*e in fan awing. Hundreda of tttonaanda of de- 
voted parents for the next few weeks will be 
arranging to take the children to the pantomime 
as a yearly treat, and the children, because they 
-eo—lder It •Wright tWlJFloiEo to S P«i' 
totnlme, will be clamoring to be taken. 

AM yet I doobt very much whether the day 
of pantomime la not over. There la no doubt 
that It Is no longer the fresh, «m n .f ng . Joy to 
children that It used to be In the past, and the 
•access of the fairy plays, like Peter Pan. Alice 
to Wonderland. The Blue Bird, and Pinkie, 
anew that wherever a lira! appears, then the 
pantomime has to take a very bad second place. 
.1 think the average manager Is already ha- 
lloa; to realize thla, and very few of them 
confidently look forward to making a good 
out of pantomime like they did to the 
Of coarse, while In the provinces espec- 
j pantomime remains tie sole form of Christ- 
mas entertainment. It la bound to do fairly 
areJJ. Bnt Immediately the fairy plays begin to 
snake gxouud quickly, or some other alternative 
■makes tta appearance, then the day of pantomime 
wul be over. 

The essence of the matter Is that pantomime Is 
no longer s children's show. To-day It la really 
r*?5? . "O^l* for adalta, and It la excessively 
.doubtful whether, even if children understand, 
they appreciate It. I can quite understand the 
feelings of many people who protest that the 
average pantomime la no longer a show soluble 
•for children. In these dsys the panto has be- 
*°™« merely a reclulstened end redressed music 
ban entertainment, and generally a bad one at 

Sffl: -.1?" 5 k,neer " ■ T « rIe '» •<">" P"t up

«ul Bah. pawnbrokers and washing bills from the 

Old type of red-nosed comedian, neither an- they 

snore appreciated when pat before as to the 
accompaniment ot endless clang, clash and 
glitter. The modern pantomime, however, la 
nothing more nor less than a huge codec tl on of 
annate ball torn*, and the average comedian for 
tuts purpose thinks It Incumbent on himself to 
intro-hu e . lot of ancient ataff that woold not be 
tolerated Tor an Instant In a music hall. In this 
children are not welcomed at the ordl- 
iriety show. But ye. aa soon as panto- 

Another great fault la that .v. ... 

fashioned pantomime bad a con 
which the children ware quite 
which they looked forward to seeing played In 
■every detail, the modern pantomime bss no more 
pretensions to any set of connected Incidents 
than the type of moalcal comedy which we use 
to have sprung upou us Ave or six years ago 
The principals are generally well known vaude- 
ville artlsls who come on and give their turn 
Just mm they would at an ordinary hall. They 
•tng their old songs and drag to bos In ess which 
they hsve been using for aa long as they can 
remember. To attempt to lit In with the rest, 
would rob them of tbelr Individual kudos and 
•o they don't do It. Consequently the child who 
. t J&'? ,0 .. ,ne P« nt omIme to see, aay, the story 
of Cinderella acted on the stage, instead sees 
the kind of entertslnment provided one csn get 
for fifty weeks In the year at any London music 
hall, and he goes away disappointed. Even the 
Illuminations and general glitter 
pensste him for what ha baa lost. 

And so I think that the sooner managers realise 
that pantomimes are Intended for children, and 
not for grown-ups, the better It wilt be for 
them. Meanwhile they will have to atand by 
and see tbelr business) snatched awiy from them 
ny the fairy plays which really do appeal to 
children, even though they may at times bore 
tbelr parents. 

I .was telling yon list week about the renewed 
trouble between the Coliseum and the Theatrical 
Managers' Association In regard to the question 
of music hail sketches. Since then a meeting 
has been held with 'all tbe leading managers 
present on the one band, and Henry Tozer. 
waiter Gibbons sod Wslter de Prece, represent- 
ing the music ball element. Tbe meeting wag 
called to ascertain whether the old agreement 

^regarding music ball sketches was to be re- 

■»*"!• <i as operative and binding. The meeting 
Heclded that It was, and tbe old arrangement that 
Who sketch In a music hall shall take more than 
thirty mlnntes Is to be continued. 

Of coarse, neither Oswald Stoll or sir Edward 
Moss was present at thla meeting. The former 
baa Just been lined on account of tbe production 
of Seymour Hicks' Richard III. at tbe Coliseum, 
and 128 people haze been thrown out of work 
In consequence. 

Bnt why the nutate hulls pat ap with this 
ridiculous state of affairs, I haze never been 
able to understand. Tbe fact of tbe matter Is 
that the theatre managers believe that the music 
halls, by the good business that is done. Injure 
their • theatre. Some years ago they discovered 
that music halls came tinder an almost for- 
gotten act ot Parliament, which permitted no 
etage play of "any length whatever" to be per- 
formed in a "sing-song" halt. This set was 
passed In 1842, was aimed at tbe old style of 
entertslnment. and waa supposed to be for the 
protection of public morals. All the same. It 
still permits in these dsya a great enterprise 
like the Coltsenm or Hippodrome to be brought 
down to the level of a little sapper room of 
seventy yesrs ago. 

If tbe music ball proprietors bene bad any 
' at all. they would combine and get thla 
waled. Bnt Instead of that, some years 
entered Into this agreement with the 
janagers by which sketches lasting not 

thirty minutes I 
ce then, at the 
ment. they have allowed thet 
beaten by the theatres. 

The best thing they can now do Is to tear np 
this agreement and go tbelr own way. If the 
theatres want to prosecute, let tbem do so. In 
all probability the offence will be deal with, as 
it has been on several occasions before, as a 
purely technical one, and the common Informer — 
always employed In these cases — ordered to pay 
the coats ot both aides aa a vexatious litigant. 
More thin this. It would make the Individual 
manager prosecute In hut own name instead of 
biding behind the Managers* Association. It 
thla course were taken systematically, I fancy 
It woold not be long before tbe old and really 
obsolete act of Parliament would be repealed. 

I hear that O. P. Buotley shortly Intends to 
take a company or bis own out to Canada, where 
be will tour with a repertoire, beaded by Mr. 
Popple, of Ippleton. 

The Palladium, tbe great new music ball, 
about which I haze already written, will open 
on Boxing Day. It will seat 0,000 persons, and 
baa coot a million dollars to construct. What 
Is In effect s London dob accommodation, la 
provided for visitors. It will be a two show a 
day bouse, morning ami afternoon..

Recent Controversies Between Billposters 
Proprietors, "Knight of the Brush" 
Expresses a Few Opinions

; and alwa 

Bdltor Tbe Billboard: 

Dor Sir— In reading toll week'* Billboard, 
dated Utc 17, and noticing tbe Interest you Lake 
ta tbe I. Mini and blllpoatera of large attractions, 
I tbonybt 1 would write ud ask too a tew 
qoeatltma of XTcxter Importance. 

I iiave been In tbe clrcna bnalneaa fourteen 
jraara. employed by different organisations In 
tbe adTertlalng department. I bare llred to eeo 
them come and go, and am to-day conaldered tbe 
beat man on root* Work In tbe ooalneaa. 

* dreua. In tbe Brat place, looks forward to 
tkelr bUlpoiteri. It U np to them whether they 
get any money or not. Isn't It, although the car 
manager warns tbe men of a route rider In the 
Tear, who rides and checks each sheet of paper 
posted. Their Is only one or two organisations 
to-day paying a man for that business, and 
although tbe bin poster Is wise to that fact, be 
oat In tbe morning, be covers every old 
or building be may come to, m.Hns; 
— of 35 miles drive a day. rain or 
i every minute of hie time to said 
always willing to get roused oat of 
bank st any boor of tbe night to be dropped 
oat at some small town, or sent ahead on a 

After spending the whole night en route to 
des tinat ion, making two or three changes no 
doubt, with at least five barrels of paste, dve 
Mr bods of paper, a bundle of brushes, pru- 
gxam», buckets, etc. After unloading hU para 
ph em i ll a. getting squared away, as the ear 
manager calla it. then be plants his weary 
b on u s in some sest or on some trunk till the 
country wagona arrive. He can't go to bed. 
Why? This Is the question, because he Is only 
allowed 23 cents for bed mosey. If be goes over 
Oat be has to go down In bis own pocket for It. 
Ha gets np off the trunk, he goes and sees how- 
far Ma two blta will go for breakfast. No 
doubt he will have to Onlsb up with a two bit 
meal— a sandwich and a cop of coffee. 

I believe If a circus expects to get work out 
of a man. they will hare to come up on their 
: money. Not only that, but their wages, 
when yon read In a want column, bill- 
wanted, best accommodation, and guod 
salary, what does that meant I 

strste to yon. They first send yon a contract, 
which yon will sign, many doing so without 
even reading it over, not knowing they sre 
signing their life away, offering to work day or 
night, rain or snow, for 40 and 10, or 30 and 10 
more often, the 10 which I mentioned Is what 
they call a whole back. Do I believe in 111 
No. You may say why. Here she la: 

Two years ago we were making tbe western 
Country with what Is calied a prominent show. 
Four men were sent sbesd from the Dakolaa to 
a small town In Montana on a position, with 
two routes each, averaging 40 miles. Anyone 
making that country will know that things are 
mure expensive up there than they sre here. 
Fur Instance, hair cot 90 cents, share 23 cents, 
bath 5u cents, etc. A SO cent bed would be a 
stall no doubt out in one of the corals. Well, 
to finish my story. We were there eight days. 
No hotel contracted. Why, the show only 
allowed the contractor st the most 25 cents s 
meal, which looks like an abbreviation to the 
people up there. 

What did we have to do? We had to go down 
In our own Jeans and dig up, which meant at 
■east *8.0U- 

Yvn may say why didn't you quit? Simply 
because we were being payed 30 and 10. We 
had dve months In and one more to go. We bad 
to stick It out, for being 1.200 miles from 
home, and only having about $20.00 left In tbe 
bank. Quit, that la what they wanted; to catch 
our bold back. 1 believe some one had ought 
to take bold of this matter and make them 
come to tbe front, raise the wages and pay 
straight time, and allow at least 35 cents for 
meals and CO cents for lodging. 

If yon expect work out of your men, yon 
can't treat tnem as dogs; sleep on trucks, eat 
coffee and doughnnts, and get np and expect 
them to work the next day. 

As I have said before, to get the work out 
of them depends greatly on your receipts and 
order to do so.
